Description: Civil Procedure in Hong Kong: A Guide to the Main Principles, 3rd Edition is a popular text with students and practitioners, has developed a reputation as being user‐friendly, simply written guide to the main principles of civil procedure. More than five years have passed since the coming into effect of the Civil Justice Reform (CJR). The Court has given much guidance on many aspects of the new rules, including in the last couple of years or so where there have been more appellate decisions. Important developments, updated case law and refinements include: the Court of Final Appeal’s restatement of the law on dismissal of want of prosecution; the large body of post CJR‐case law which has developed; a substantial amount of guidance issued by the Courts on the new CJR rules; many parts of the existing text have also been revised or refined, in order to provide clearer or expanded explanations; more examples from recent cases have also been included; increased emphasis on the Court’s post‐CJR approach; new Companies Ordinance provisions.
